4B Wedr~esday, April 7, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Canyon rock slide 5? Friday, April 2, the Feather River Canyon was closed in the late afternoon hours. A rockslide between Elephant Butte and Arch Rock tunnels covered both lanes of traffic. Eastbound vehicles were turned back, but Caltrans was waiting on equipment to open the westbound lane and let a mile of westbound traffic through. As of 5:30 p.m. the equipment had yet to arrive and dri- vers were advised that they had hours wait. Caltrans would close the road after the traffic went through for cleanup. Efforts to fix the problem were further complicated because it was a furlough Friday for state employees.
